OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Quick, convenient, quality health care has come to the Oklahoma City metro area with the opening of a MinuteClinic health care center at the CVS/pharmacy store in Moore at 1040 SW 19th Street. MinuteClinic (http://www.minuteclinic.com), the pioneer and largest provider of retail-based health care in the United States, plans to open up to six additional locations in the metro area by the end of the year.
The MinuteClinic in Moore, the region's first retail health care center, is open Mon.-Fri. from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sat.-Sun. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
MinuteClinic health care centers are staffed by master's-prepared, board- certified nurse practitioners who specialize in family health care and are trained to diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common family illnesses such as strep throat and ear, eye, sinus, bladder and bronchial infections. MinuteClinic also offers common vaccinations such as influenza, tetanus, MMR, and Hepatitis A & B.
Because examinations typically take 10-15 minutes and no appointment is necessary, MinuteClinic is an ideal solution for professionals and working parents who cannot afford time away from the workplace.
"MinuteClinic health care centers are an answer to consumers' overwhelming demand for more patient-centric health care," said Michael Howe, chief executive officer for MinuteClinic. "As more patients look to take control of their health care options, we provide a fast, convenient and affordable service for common maladies that is available seven days a week."
